Title: Cesium-137 in the Sediments of Fourmile Creek

Abstract

The Nonproliferation Technology Section (NTS) was requested by the Environmental Restoration Division (ER) to aid in completing ground-truth measurements of aerial overflight data in support of the Integrator Operable Unit (IOU) program at the Savannah River Site (SRS). The IOU's at the SRS are under investigation as a possible pathway for the release of contamination from past SRS activities to off-unit receptors and the environment. The IOU's are defined as surface water bodies and associated wetlands, including the water, sediment and related biota. The objective of the IOU program is to: assess the risk to potential human and ecological receptors from IOU contamination; evaluate the impact of inactive and active waste units and operating facilities on the IOU quality; determine if IOU early actions, including reprioritization of operable units implementation schedules, are necessary; and complete the remedial investigation/feasibility study process, defining the nature and extent of IOU contamination, remedial action objectives, and final remediation goals.
